  • Alexander Sorloth to score anytime @ 6/4

Team News

Villarreal are expected to be without Alfonso Pedraza, Dani Parejo, Ramon Terrats, Yeremi Pino and Denis Suarez for this clash.

Defenders Eric Bailly and Juan Foyth are also both major doubts to feature as they struggle with their fitness.

Mauro Arambarri will miss out for Getafe with a long-term knee injury but Gaston Alvarez returns after a suspension and Fabrizio Angileri could be passed fit after suffering a muscular problem.

Match Odds

Villarreal can be backed at 21/20 for the victory, while Getafe are 5/2 outsiders and the draw is available at 13/5.

Over 2.5 goals is on offer at 5/6, while both teams to score is priced at 8/11 and it is 7/4 for over 1.5 goals in the first half.

Villarreal to win @ 21/20

Villarreal have struggled this season, with the demands of their European campaign wreaking havoc on an injury-hit squad.

The Yellow Submarine have managed to right the ship somewhat in recent weeks however, going unbeaten in their last four league games, and they can get the better of Getafe in this one.

The hosts have beaten Barcelona in their recent run and they have a strong record against these opponents in recent years.

Villarreal are unbeaten in their last 10 meetings with Getafe, winning seven of those. The visitors also have a poor record on the road this term, winning just one of their 12 away trips in the league.

Villarreal have netted six times in their last three outings and have tightened things up at the back recently so are fancied to secure a crucial home win.

Alexander Sorloth to score anytime @ 6/4

Alexander Sorloth is a key aspect of Villarreal’s attacking success and the Norwegian striker will be looking to add to his tally for the season in this game.

The former Crystal Palace forward has ten goals in all competitions this term and is a real physical presence that defences can struggle to deal with.

Getafe have the worst defensive record in the top half of the table and Sorloth has two goals in his last four appearances, so side with him to land on the scoresheet again in this matchup.
